If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)
The 8(a) Business Development Program is a Federal government program designed to give a lift to small businesses owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals.
Paul welcomes special guest Shelley Hall (retired Contracting Officer and Skyway team member) to discuss the phases of the 8(a) program and, most importantly, graduation from the program.
Listen and learn why 8(a) certified companies must understand the changes through each phase and be prepared to thrive after graduation.

Kevin Jans and Paul Schauer created the Contracting Officer Podcast to help government and industry acquisition professionals understand more about how the other side thinks. As former government Contracting Officers who have also walked in industry’s shoes, Kevin and Paul share their perspectives in support of the podcast mission: Make government contracts better, one contract at a time.
Admittedly, the podcast’s name sounds very limiting. It is not just for contracting officers or even just for those in the contracting profession. Anyone with an interest in the Federal acquisition world can benefit from the insight and down-to-earth explanations of complicated topics provided by the hosts.
